Samsung is set to launch a Galaxy M55 smartphone powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 chipset. This was revealed on Geekbench, where the SM-M556B was compared. The device also appeared with 8GB of RAM and Android 14, likely with One UI 6 on top.
The smartphone was tested on an old version 4.2 of Geekbench, which is so dated that even our test database doesn’t include any relevant results. This means that the 3,575 single-core and 11,330 multi-core scores can’t be compared to other smartphones, and we have no idea how it would stack up against its competitors.
Fortunately, we can make another comparison of this raw CPU performance. The predecessor Galaxy M54 was announced with Exynos 1380, while the Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 is present in the Honor 90 and Xiaomi 13 Lite phones. Our data shows that CPU performance won’t be a huge improvement, but switching to a Qualcomm SoC could increase the Galaxy M55’s battery life.
However, these synthetic benchmarks only constitute an overview of the entire landscape. We have to wait until Samsung actually launches the Galaxy M55 to see how it would compare to its competitors.
